Changes in laser-induced thermoelastic effects depending on the position of an absorbing layer in indirect laser stimulation

Abstract

We studied the laser-induced thermoelastic effects in an elastic medium that can be used for indirect laser stimulation, depending on the position of the absorbing layer. The displacement of the front and rear surface centers of the medium was simulated numerically by solving the heat transfer and thermoelastic wave equations. It was observed that by changing the position of the absorbing layer in the medium, the magnitude and more importantly, the direction of displacement can be controlled. In particular, pushing (displacement into the skin) was expected for an absorbing layer near the rear surface of the medium, whereas pulling (displacement away from the skin) was observed for an absorbing layer near the front surface.
